Holistically Focusing on Each Child
Because of the value of education, schools are a key focus of our work. Statistically, impacting this age group has a massive impact on community transformation. UNICEF notes a proven correlation between Early Childhood Development (ECD) and a future reduction in crime rates, unemployment, and overall health complications.
We are launching a scalable and reproducible ECD school model that focuses holistically on each child and his or her individual development at this crucial period in life. Each school will initially launch with the 3-6 age group as the primary target. As demand, need, and resources allow, we will expand into subsequent grades.
